Can you use the gamecube controller to play the game?

No, its either just the Wii mote or Wii mote with nunchuk.

Are you sure about that? The game asks to unplug the nunchuk.

Certain, when the game first loads it says hold the wii mote sideways, but if you plug a nunchuk in it works. I have not seen it say unplug the nunchuk.

I must say the the "flick" is pretty convenient in my opinion.

I don't see why people are so bent out of shape about this.  The motion controls work fine, given how simple they are and what they're intended for.  Holding the Wii Remote sideways is no different than using an NES controller, anyway.

@dcpc10: I did read it again, and honestly, there's not much to infer from it, aside from a dislike of the motion controls.  You make no mention of any desire for an alternate control scheme or options that allow control remapping.

@Hailinel:
 
I'm confused. Am I involved in this argument?

I agree with dcpc10. 
 
Also, I would like to add that holding the wii remote sideways feels awkward to me......even on short sessions, but even moreso on long sessions.  It was a huge mistake in my opinion for Nintendo to not add classic controller support for this game.
